Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies pulled over the multi-platinum selling rapper and his wife in a Maybach on Sunset Boulevard around 10:18PM. Deputies say they smelled marijuana.

When searching the vehicle cops found a controlled substance. Law enforcement sources tell us the controlled substance was not cocaine, but rather the class of controlled substance that triggered the arrest includes methamphetamines and ecstasy.

The couple just got married on July 30 in Miami, and T.I. -- real name Clifford Harris Jr. -- is on probation after doing seven months in prison on federal weapons charges.

Law enforcement sources say both T.I. and Tameka were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance.
 
We're told T.I. and Tameka are in custody right now. Bail amount is $10,000.

UPDATE: T.I. and Tameka were released around 4:00AM.

Are they celebrities or just random people busted in West Hollywood that TMZ decided to report on?

Did they deny it was their cocaine? Blame it on Paris perhaps?

IMO he deserved it. I saw him do a couple of interviews and he acts like he's better than everybody else. Fame went straight to that head!!
Even the interviewer was taken aback. He sat there with shades on the whole time like a pompous @$$

He's just getting his. Don't know abt her.
